OVER fifty community members, friends, and family gathered in solidarity with Cece Mcdonald, whose hearing in Hennepin County District Court was set for June 28th but was continued to July 11th. After packing the District courtroom, advocates called for a fair trial for Ms. Mcdonald at a press conference held outside the Government Center. Reporters were present from Kare 11 News, KSTP 5 Eyewitness News, The Star Tribune, The Minnesota Independent, City Pages, Colu.mn, and Lavender Magazine.
Community members pledged to remain steadfast in their support for Mcdonald throughout the trial process. David Tomilson, friend of Ms. Mcdonald, announced, “We’re going to be here July 11, and we’re going to bring friends.”
Advocates urged anyone who wants to get involved to attend ongoing community meetings. Supporters are fundraising Ms. Mcdonald’s $150,000 bail.
